All’s quiet at the trade deadline, with Aqib Talib the only deal of the day

AP

Trent Williams stayed put. Jamal Adams stayed put. Chris Harris stayed put. Le'Veon Bell stayed put. Janoris Jenkins stayed put. A.J. Green stayed put. Patrick Peterson stayed put. O.J. Howard stayed put.

Everyone, in fact, except Aqib Talib stayed put Tuesday.

The NFL’s trade deadline closed with a whimper.

The Rams sent Talib, who is on injured reserve and in the final year of his contract, and a fifth-round pick to the Dolphins for a future pick Tuesday.

Nothing else happened in a dud of a day.

The market for Adams seemed to be heating up as 4 p.m. ET deadline approached, but the Cowboys and other teams found the asking price for the safety too expensive. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports the Jets were asking for a “shade under” what the Jaguars got for Jalen Ramsey.

The Jaguars received two first-round draft selections as well as the Rams’ 2021 fourth-round choice.

The Cowboys offered a first-round choice for Adams, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports, in a deal similar to what the Steelers dealt to the Dolphins for Minkah Fitzpatrick. It wasn’t enough.

Trades did happen in the NFL as the trade deadline approached with Michael Bennett (from Patriots to Cowboys), Ramsey (from Jaguars to Rams), Kenyan Drake (from Dolphins to Cardinals), Genard Avery (from Browns to Eagles), Leonard Williams (from Jets to Giants), Mohamed Sanu (from Falcons to Patriots), Emmanuel Sanders (from Broncos to 49ers), Quandre Diggs (from Lions to Seahawks) and Gareon Conley (from Raiders to Texans) among recent movement.

  1. So basically the RAMS overpaid in their trade for Ramsey and Jerry Jones refused to overpay for Adams. Nothing wrong with not overpaying in this league.

  2. I’m shocked the Patriots didn’t acquire O.J. Howard, Tyler Eifert, or Trent Williams. If you’re a fan, this is a bit disappointing.

  3. Texans screwed up everything with their dumb trade with the dolphins. Every team now thinks they can get gold plus silver plus diamonds for players theyr are looking to move on from.

  4. There is usually a bad team or two each year, but my god, redskins, dolphins, jets, Bengals, giants, bucs, all beyond awful….

  5. These owners think they are playing chess not checker but they need to check their game board again. Asking for crazy returns back for players who are not interested in playing for them or are not even generating any production for their team. I mean maybe I dont blame Jets. They are trying to build around what they have so far and rather not get rid of the pieces they have so far. However, Bell is not helping and you can get lot of great RB in the draft. They should take any great offer for him. Redskins are fools. Keeping a player who is in the last year of his contract, haven’t played for half the season and shows no interest in helping the team and also in his 30’s. You get offered a 1’st I see no reason to turn that down especially it might be a top 15 pick.

    If you are a Patriots fan, you have ZERO right to be disappointed about ANYTHING. EVER.

  7. So, here’s the Rams trade list.

    Traded 2018 4th and 2019 2nd for Marcus Peters and 2018 6th. Then they traded Peters for Kenny Young and a bag of peanuts.

    Traded 2018 5th for Talib. Then traded Talib and 2020 5th for a 2020 7th

    Traded 2020 1st, 2021 1st and 20214th for Ramsey.

    That’s brutal! Not to mention what they gave up for Cooks.

    And yet the Dolphins are the only team we hear about “tanking.” If the Dolphins are tanking, what are all of these other teams, many of whom have big-contract “star” players, doing?

  9. Once again, the Ford family was sleeping during this time instead of doing something for D backfield or helping the running game……

    Yet the cowboys over paid for Cooper last year

  11. Bad teams overvaluing their players and asking for the moon,
    hoping to bait anyone to take bad contracts off their hands.

    Good teams became good by knowing how to evaluate talent and
    to agree to fair compensation, without overpaying for players.
